The hours and the days of this last week have flown by! I am usually quite flexible with how I allocate my time throughout the day - work, chores, play - and if it is on my to-do list, it does generally get done. This week however there has been a hint of Spring in the air and it seems to have disturbed my rhythm. Doors and windows were thrown open to catch the gentle warm breeze, quilts washed and line dried, furniture rearranged, fabric stash tidied and managed, followed by too much coffee out on the decking.
And so this quilt is the product of my late evening fabric cutting sessions; fabric from my now overflowing scrap bin, and pulled from what was my tidy fabric stash. Only in my dreams is my fabric stash tidy! The plan was to deal with that overflowing scrap bin but in reality it has made little difference. It's still out of control - in a good way of course. I love working with scraps.
This quilt top is made from many of my favorite prints including several older and hard to find designs, as well as newer prints. No specific color palette for this quilt, instead I have embraced the all over scrappy (and colorful) look.
A selection of more than 200 different quilting cottons make up this quilt.
I made 42 16-patch blocks and 6 8-patch blocks: a total of 720 patches of fabric.
Each finished square measures 2.5" x 2.5".
Quilt top measures 60 inches x 75 inches.
Thank you for stopping by!
